And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.

Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. 😀 (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)

IMG_0358It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)

And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. 😉

Where are my glasses?

This is from Marilyn’s post, but it could oh so easily be mine. 🙂

I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014 during which we were on the road most of the time. I don’t know precisely when they vanished or where.

OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”

I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?

Just a sec…

Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.

So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.

Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa

Solar Eclipse 20.03.2015.

Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. 😀

Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!

AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. 🙂 That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.

YAY!

Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.

And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. 😉

What causes a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moon’s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because that’s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.

Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)

Protect your eyes.

Do not look directly at the Sun. 😦 It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here: MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR

Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) 😀

If you ever loved someone put your hands up…

After a lot of Prompts from Daily Post which left me going “Nope.” ( like the one, write your obituary. I mean… 😕 ) finally a good one. Aaaand it was on my birthday. Double like.

First of all, my jukebox brain is already singing so…. You already know how this goes. 😉

Love is universal. Love is a savior.

I wish that everyone who does not know what love feels like experience complete and ultimate acceptance and encouragement to be who they are and to build their life around that answer. You who are reading this! Yes, I wish that for you. Love yourself.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Want to Know What Love Is.”

So you can see what I am talking about;

Orange. What was first, the color or the name?

IMG_0m882

I love taking photos like this one… When I don’t have to do ANY editing whatsoever, none. 🙂

Also, I totally like the orange theme! It seems that I am surrounded with it since I saw it everywhere when I read this week’s theme for DPchallenge.

Enjoy in my gallery of “orange” while I go and eat one 😎

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

White and Lilac

_MG_0081

Some things are new, even though we know they are coming. Spring is coming, but knowing that does not diminish the fact that I love to see spring flowers blossom… It’s magical. I had to take few with me from the meadows of white and lilac waking flowers (saffron).

It is 8 o’clock

Rest in peace good man.

Rest in peace kind man.

Rest in peace, you who were always there to land a hand, to help others.

Rest in peace, you who I never thought I would have to say goodbye so soon.

Your daughters are good, I have seen them yesterday. My friend and I cried and hugged and talked.

And we don’t understand.

Why.

And we are a bit angry.

Because we know why.

And we are so, so sad.

Because we wanted to help.

If we had known….

Rest in peace good man.

You will be missed.

I would put a heart pendant in the “Time Capsule.” Love is what we have, what we need and what is important. And my love is the only thing I could give to my friend who is grieving.

This post is dedicated to a loving father and neighbor who left us too soon.

No nightmares, just cuddles.

Daily Post… You can’t make a Prompt with song title and not expect for my jukebox brain to do this! 😉

I would like to have more nice dreams, you know. I tend to have nightmares. Well, not maybe nightmares, but definitely bad dreams. Sometimes I wake up shaking. When the dream isn’t that bad, I just have to catch my breath and repeat like in this song… “It was just a dream, just a dream…”

I have no idea why I dream so much. Bad dreams, that is. And most often I remember them.

So, I will not imagine my nightmare choice and my nightmare doors. If I had that choice in my nightmare behind the door I picked there would be something horrible. Instead, I want that the door I pick open up and I realize it is a dream and woke up. No nightmares. Just cuddles. 🙂

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Just a Dream.”
